The Dems Go West ... and South

Nevada and South Carolina will be the Democrats' new early-'08 states. From The Hotline:

The committee voted to hold the Iowa caucus on January 14th, the Nevada caucus thereafter, the New Hampshire primary on January 22nd, and the South Carolina primary no earlier than January 29th. The window officially opens on February 5th.

Arizona and Alamaba were alternates.

What to make of this? Consider it a BIG gift to John Edwards. Nevada will be as much of a "labor" caucus as a western caucus. And South Carolina is Edwards's place of birth, and neighbor (uh, of course) to North Carolina, which Edwards represented in the Senate.

New Hampshire, meanwhile, is pissed.
